Bills QB Josh Allen has again found himself among the NFL’s biggest names following the conclusion of the 2021 season.
In his fourth year out of Wyoming, he was ranked as one of the three highest graded Quarterbacks over the last two seasons per Pro Football Focus.
Allen (92.6) ranked third in the league during those past two seasons behind only Aaron Rodgers (94.8) and Tom Brady (94.6):

With Brady retired in Florida, that leaves Rodgers and Allen as the number one and two highest-ranked active players at the quarterback position going into the 2022 season.
Buffalo made it to the brink of what would have been another AFC Championship berth in the playoffs thanks in big part to Allen’s play.
The young QB’s emergence over the past two seasons has put both his pre-NFL draft scouting report as well as the order in which other players at his position were selected before him in the 2018 draft under the microscope.
In 2021, Allen would finish the year with 4,407 passing yards, 36 TD’s, and a 60.7 QBR. This came after a 2020 campaign that included 4,544 passing yards, 37 TD’s, and a 76.6 QBR.
With Brady out of the league and an offseason to think about his team’s early departure from the playoffs, once more at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead, it will be interesting to see what a very motivated Allen can accomplish next season.
